    This album is okay. I was definitely intrigued by Natalie's delicate voice and the throwback 70s easy-listening style, but ultimately I was hoping for something a bit more innovative. Aside from the first two songs and maybe a few others, much of the album sounds like something my parents or grandparents would listen to. Nothing is wrong with it, per se, it just sounds a bit dated and generic.

    The rich production and ambitious, multi-faceted arrangements provided by White’s Spacebomb crew are the perfect foil for Prass’s soft, exquisite voice and expressive, tear-stained songs, such that the overwhelming impression of the LP is, against the odds, one of triumph; of beauty both wrangled out of and amplified immeasurably by loss.

    Natalie Prass shows she’s got the complex stuff down pat, but getting back to the basics might be the next stage of development that takes her to another level.

    Hats off to this fantastic singer-songwriter for not only emerging from the fog so quickly, but also for crafting a dynamic album that is bigger than its size and very deserving of the praise it will undoubtedly receive.
